Can my child use the funds from the Lansing SAVE account for any kind of cost? Does it have to be tuition?
Your Lansing SAVE account is a CSA (Children's Savings Account), and strict rules apply to these kinds of programs. All savings are dedicated to postsecondary education after high school. This includes tuition for college, community college, or other kinds of training programs. It can also be used for books and other education-related expenses.
+
What will happen to the Lansing SAVE account if my child does not go to college?
Lansing SAVE account funds can be used toward other kinds of postsecondary education, like community college, city colleges or technical and vocational training. If your child decides not to pursue any postsecondary education, the funds you've saved (privately invested funds) will be returned to your child when he or she turns 26. However, funds contributed to your child's account by the City of Lansing or our partners (public invested funds), and interest accrued on those funds, feature restrictions. These funds must go toward postsecondary education related expenses, and will be reinvested in the Lansing SAVE program if not used by your child for this purpose.
+
If my child transfers schools, or leaves the Lansing School District, do they get to keep their Lansing SAVE account?
If your child has a Lansing SAVE account and transfers schools within the Lansing School District nothing will change with their account. If they leave the school district their account will remain open, but no new funds will be deposited by the Lansing School District.
+
Am I (as the parent/guardian) liable for tax implications on this account?
No, parents/guardians are not liable for any tax implications on their child's Lansing SAVE account. Lansing SAVE accounts are set up with only the student's name and no social security number. All tax implications are handled through MSU Federal Credit Union and the City of Lansing.
